Kind of tired of working in finance. Have tried corporate & banking in different companies but sadly my experiences always have a toxic boss, no training, and lead to a bad quality of life. I want a career change and am thinking HR might be a good fit. It doesn’t seem as stressful or toxic. I thought about marketing but wasn’t able to break in with my background being mostly finance. Anyone else tried going into HR and do you like it better?

Wharton EMBA worth it? Late career starter so limited white collar experience but interesting background/past life. Also have kids to support so can’t do a full time program. Want the MBA for career boost ($), as an entry to faang/MBB and to have more security for future opportunities. Worth it? Does the EMBA have the same faang/MBB recruitment access and weight as full time?

Did anyone else register for the CFA, but miss the “scheduling” deadline. I unfortunately did as I assumed after “registering” I was all set. After studying 300+ hours I’m unable to even get the chance to take the test without repaying the entire fee. Anyone have any suggestions, or been through a similar situation? It also seems incredibly unethical, as I don’t see the point in having a scheduling deadline 3 months before the actual exam? Am I being biased?

What's Accenture's promotion path/general years of experience to each level?

I often use corporate rates for personal travel and in a sample size of 20 hotels across Hyatt and Marriott, I’ve only been asked for my work badge once at a Courtyard (or possibly Fairfield). I’m leaving my firm soon, but tempted to continue to use the corporate rate after I leave since they so infrequently check. Has anyone had any experience with this?

Is it normal for you to ever be “ghosted” by your administration? I feel like I’m constantly emailing, calling, texting, and meeting with them and nothing gets done. As soon as I leave their office, I’m ignored. If I email/text them a question or request, I’m ignored unless it benefits them. This is at a district where I travel between 3 schools and have 3 principals. They’re all like this and communication is especially important since I have to travel.
